Do Small Businesses Need Cloud Storage Service?

Cloud Storage Services

Not using cloud storage for your business yet? Cloud storage provides small businesses like yours with several advantages. Start using one now and look forward to the following benefits:

Easy back-up of files

According to Practicalecommerce, it provides small businesses with a way to backup their documents and files. No need to pay for an expensive server or worry about spending even more on the upgrades or memory expansion. All you have to do, in some cases, is scout around comparison sites like Tomshardware and Cloud Kompare and look for cloud storage services that offer several free plans. Read the comparison analysis reports, decide on the best one and sign up! That’s simple and easy.

Improved collaboration. People have access to the same drive, the same files and resources so it’s easy to update everyone on what’s happening. It also provides you with a convenient way to share content and keep everyone on the same page. That improved access improves collaboration between and among teams which, in turn, raise productivity levels at the office.

Wireless mobility

The way most cloud storage services work is that it allows everyone on the team to access the same files. No matter where your team is, whether they’re running late and on the road, or sick at home or working from the café two blocks away, cloud storage offers teams a way to connect and touch base easily and more frequently. That means location won’t have to be a problem for you and your team in getting the information you need, when you need it.

Remote teams

According to Lifehacker, about 68 percent of HR teams believe that creating Workplace policies that provide employees with a more flexible work arrangement—from telecommuting to work from home solutions or remote work set ups—attracts more employees and makes the company more competitive. So in place of monetary perks, some small companies are trying their hand at offering remote work solutions instead. That’s where the mobility of cloud storage services comes in pretty handy. If one of your best employees needs to move and relocate, you won’t have to say no to that employee. With cloud solutions, you can say yes and still keep your people so you won’t have to spend money on rehiring and retraining someone else for the position. This is also ideal for when one of your employees sends in a request to work remote from anywhere in the world. So long as the internet connection is reliable, you can grant their requests, retain long-term employees and save on rehiring/retraining costs.

Global hiring and teams

Some small businesses—which describe most startups—take advantage of that reach to hire global talents. Cloud storage services make working across continents convenient and cost-effective. You and your team get to work on the same interface and access the same files. You can run your team from anywhere in the world with a lot of technologies available these days and cloud solutions is one of them. So if you plan on expanding your business or growing your core business in this way, you’ll find cloud storage extremely useful for your organization.

Multi-platform access

According to Businessnewsdaily, one of the best things about cloud storage is that it works with most devices. Can’t access the file through your laptop because you left it at the office? No worries. You can use your phone to read the file. Cloud solutions work on mobile, tablets and laptops. That kind of omni-channel compatibility makes it easy for your teams to access and share files from anywhere, at any time.

No more hardware

 

Gone are the days when you had to hire a team of IT specialist just to take care of a lot of clunky, expensive hardware and even more expensive upgrades. With cloud, you don’t have to hire a team of specialists to manage your storage so you either save up on personnel costs or channel your IT resources better by giving them other tasks and responsibilities.

With so many benefits, it would be smart to start adopting cloud solutions into your infrastructure, if you haven’t already started. That or start finding ways to take advantage of more cloud solutions in your day-to-day operations. With cloud, your business can grow and move forward in the best possible way.

Not sure how to get the right one though? No worries. With the growing number of comparison sites, picking the right one from a multitude of cloud storage services is efficient and easy. Just take a look at the benefits that address the greatest needs of your business, compare which ones match your requirements and pick that.

You can always explore more options later too. Some services might be ideal for small businesses but as your organization grows, so will your needs so keep an eye out for future adjustments.
